Moving To Sydney from Canada

Relocating to Sydney

More than five million people living in Australia’s largest city call themselves Sydneysiders. It’s iconic Opera House is an example of the beauty, the beaches, the climate and enjoyment of life, beyond office hours, are for all to enjoy. None the less, it is as expensive a city as any in North America or Europe. Sydney is a little warmer, sunnier and dryer than Melboure and locals consider it a more corporate town. Melbourne is more about the arts, entertainment and unique establishments.
The cultural diversity rooted in its Aboriginal heritage allows Sydney to be a comfortable home for new residents. Locals refer to it being a city of villages, pockets of ethnic and linguistic uniqueness.

Tips For Moving to Sydney

Sydney is at the same time similar and different from Vancouver. Detailed planning for shipping your possessions, pets and vehicles, as well as using them presents challenges. Their seasons are the reverse of Canada, driving is on the left side of the road, guns have been restricted since 1996, etc. It takes time to sort out the phrases locals use, what they say, what they think and then what they actually do. Give yourself that time to adapt.

Sydney’s high demand for all types of housing make it expensive to unaffordable by any standard. Rapid population growth, significant new job creation drive costs while the comfortable and beautiful environment attract many. High demand for moving services is the reality that puts extra pressure on both costs and timely completion. Sydney’s traffic congestion brings surprise delays and very high parking fees. Moving out of the core to communities like San Souci and Parraatta reduce those costs at the expense of transit and time delays.

Sydney like most of Australia is near the beach. Its location and generally mild weather help the moving process, any time of year. January’s temperatures are often hot and humid. Autumn (i.e. March and April) are the best time of year for moves.
